Chung is an anecdotal TCTF agent, who infiltrates a Syndicate warehouse prior to Oni's events. His cover is blown and sure enough, he is killed. His failure provides Konoko with her first mission objective:
- Griffin: The Syndicate is using the warehouse to shuttle contraband. Chung went underground to gather evidence.
- He failed to report in this morning. Find him and get me what I need to shut the place down or shut it down yourself.
- Konoko: Chung... [calls Griffin] It's Chung. I found him.
- Griffin: Dead?
- Konoko: Yes Sir.
- Griffin: Keep moving.
Next to Chung's body is a datapad with a message, apparently from Chung himself since it uses TCTF encryption. The datapad provides verbal evidence of a connection between the Syndicate and BGI, thus urging Konoko to head to Musashi Manufacturing in CHAPTER 02 . ENGINES OF EVIL
Manifest 12A-694-v contains a number of fragile items. Note the follo....
<TCTF UNIVERSAL DECRYPT RUNNING...DATA FOUND. DISPLAYING...>
"Hey, it's me: Chung.
Sorry about the encryption. But I'd hate to have this fall into the wrong hands.
If you're reading this message, then I've paid the ultimate price for failing my mission.
I suppose it was only a matter of time before the Syndicate found out I was a mole. They're smart.
All the contraband leaving this warehouse is being funneled through BGI's daughter-company, Musashi Manufacturing.
The warehouse manager has suspected this for some time and has been warning his office personnel to get out over the last month.
If I'm dead, then he's probably next. He's a good man, I hope you can find him in time.
I hope you have better luck than I did.
However, it turns out that the message was if not fabricated by Muro and his men, at least discovered and planted (together with Chung's body) where the TCTF would be sure to find it. While not quite a false track, Musashi serves as a diversion, leaving Muro and Barabas plenty of time to raid Vago Biotech for whatever one would raid Vago Biotech for.
